Almond Flour Pancakes vs Almond Flour Crepes

There is some confusion between crepes and pancakes, so let me help you understand the difference between them.

First, the texture of a crepe recipe batter is always thinner and more liquid than pancakes. It is because you want crepes to be larger, thin, and crispy.

Secondly, crepes can be eaten with savory or sweet fillings, while pancakes are mostly eaten sweet.

Finally, crepes are originally from France, while pancakes have been eaten first by Roman and Greek.

So if you like thick crepes, use my almond flour pancake recipe. But otherwise, keep reading for a tasty, thin almond flour crepe.

Almond Flour Crepe Filling

There are many ways to appreciate those almond flour crepes. You can either add a sweet filling or a savory filling.

The best low-carb sweet crepes fillings are:

  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – the easiest and most delicious crepe is filled with sugar-free crystal sweetener. I recommend a Monk fruit crystal sweetener and a dash of cinnamon or lemon juice.
  • Whipped coconut cream and berries or regular whipped cream.
  • Sugar-free maple syrup – I use Monk fruit syrup as it has no carbs, no sugar, and it is natural.
  • Sugar-free hazelnut spread– my chocolate hazelnut spread recipe is 100% sugar-free and keto-friendly. It is absolutely amazing in these crepes for breakfast.
  • Homemade peanut butter
  • Yogurt, berries, a drizzle of nut butter, and sliced almonds – If you don’t eat dairy, use dairy-free coconut yogurt. You can also use greek yogurt if you can eat dairy.
  • Sugar-free chia seed jam

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, ground almond, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and sugar-free crystal sweetener of your choice. Whisk until all the ingredients are perfectly combined and no lumps form. Set aside.
  • Warm a 9-inch crepe pan under medium heat, and use absorbent paper to rub the coconut oil on the pan and grease the pan.
  • Scoop the crepe batter into the frying pan and tilt the pan in a circular motion to ensure that the batter coats the surface evenly. The thickness of the crepes will depend on how much batter you use for each. Usually, 1/4 cup is what you need to make a 9-inch crepe.
  • Cook the crepe until the sides start to crisp up and lift off easily from the frying pan. It should take about 2 minutes each, over medium heat.
  • Loosen with a spatula and flip over to cook the other side. Both sides should be lightly brown, and the crepes should be crispy on the sides and softer in the middle.
  • Repeat for the next crepes.
  • To serve, fill each crepe with the whipped coconut cream, fold in a triangle, and top with the fruits of your choice fresh berries, spicy plum jam, etc.
Storage: The crepes, unfilled, can be stored in a fridge, on a plate. Make sure you cover the plate with plastic wrap to prevent the crepes from drying out. They can be stored for up to 3 days. Rewarm on a crepe pan and fill with the filling of your choice.
Low carb sweet filling ideas: whipped coconut cream sweetened with stevia, berries, sugar-free jam, yogurt, sugar-free melted chocolate, desiccated coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder, nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut), seed butter, or even coconut butter.
Savory filling: these crepes make a delicious, savory meal as well. Don’t add the vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt instead.  After you cook the almond flour crepes, bring them back to the pan, add a handful of grated cheese, some ham/bacon, grilled vegetables, fold the crepes in half, and return to eat in the pan for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.  Favorite combos are cheddar + bacon + fried onion or cream cheese, spinach, and ham.
Crepes Pan: I used a 9-inch Tefal crepe pan with a non-stick coating.

    111 Thoughts On Almond Flour Crepes (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)
    1 2 3
  1. 5 stars
    I think your crepe has even less carb than what you calculated. The only source of carb is the almond meal, and it only has 5 grams.

    so if you make 4 servings out of that, then you’d end up with 1.25 g of carbs.

    • That is probably true! I only post the nutrition value as indicative numbers, then I always recommend everyone to enter the exact brands of each ingredients they use in their own nutrition tracker. It can vary a lot from brand to brand. Thanks for the lovely input ! Enjoy the crepes and all the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Just made a savory version of these crepes – turned out great! Me and my husband really enjoyed them with some smoked salmon, capers an cream cheese. Thank you for the recipe 🙂

    • That sounds delicious ! Thanks so much for sharing this and trying my recipes. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    I have been after a good low carb crepe recipe ever since I started keto and this one is perfect! I made these this morning. I did two savory & two sweet. My savory ones were a mozzarella cheese, sautéed tomato and onion filling & my sweet ones were a keto strawberry jam with melted drizzled chocolate over them & also topped them with my homemade whipped cream! Delicious! Love this recipe!

  4. I have a low carb pancake recipe I love that calls for cottage cheese. It calls for eggs but I use egg beaters to reduce the cholesterol. Any idea how these would turn out with egg beaters? Essentially egg white only?

    • I guess it should work pretty well as soon as you use as much egg beaters as the volume of eggs recommended in this crepe recipe (to keep the ratio right)! Let me know if you give this a go. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

    This recipe is legit! I didn’t have any almond flour on hand, so I substituted about 1.5 tbsp of coconut flour (I started with 1 tbsp and played around with the .5 until it seemed like a good crepe consistency) and it was delish!!!

    • Thank you for the lovely feedback. I am very happy to read that this simpl almond flour crepe recipe works with some coconut flour too! Thanks again for trying my recipes and taking a minte to share such a beautiful experience. XOXO Carine.

  6. Don’t mean to be negative but these are very eggy. Saying that these are close in taste to an authentic French crepe feels like false advertising. The texture does feel similar but it very much tastes like a bland omelette. Which is fine, but not disappointing when one is looking forward to something that tastes remotely like a crepe. Thank you for sharing your recipe, but I would encourage you to remove any text stating that it tastes like a crepe.

    • As I replied to you personally this morning, this recipe has been developed to provide a tasty low carb and keto crepe option to people who can’t eat carbs or white flour. That is the closest to French crepes you can make on keto diet and that is the purpose of this recipe. My blog provides mostly recipe for low carb diet so yes it taste slightly different to regular recipe, and if you want the more conventional recipe I also have it on the blog. Look at the real french crepes recipe here, the one mum teach me as a kid. Enjoy the blog recipes XOXO Carine.

    p.s. je viens de trouver ta recette pour les crêpes français aussi et j’ai hate de l’essayer. D’habitude je mets un oeuf de moins que la recette, et je n’ai mis jamais du sucre ou vanille dans les miennes. Si le mari l’aime, ce sera ma go-to recette!

    Catering to my French husband, I generally make my regular crepes quite thin yet still rich, 2 parts water, 1 part milk. I liked this recipe in the sense that it had a certain richness to it with the almond flour, along with that savory nuttiness, but the crepes were too thick for my taste. I almost felt like I was eating a pancake. Do you have any tips or ideas to make them a bit thinner? Merci 😉

    • This is a low carb crepe recipe. It doesn’t intend to be or taste like a french crepe at 100%. It is an alternative for diabetic or people eating low carb/keto diet and can’t have wheat flour. If you like thinner crepes, you can simply add a bit more milk in this recipe and spread this thinner on the pan. Enjoy the blog. Carine.

    My son is new to the low carb world. We have been trying to find a pancake recipe he likes. Well I like crepes so I through this out there. Made these tonight minus the cinnamon. Filled with homemade peach jam and some sweetened cream cheese.

    My kid ate 3. He proclaimed they taste like ones made with regular flour.

    I now have a new crepe recipe! Thank you!!!

    • That is the BEST comment ever! I am a mum too so it makes me so happy when I read that others kids than mne enjoy my low carb treats ! Trust me all the recipe on my blog has been tested by my 2 picky eaters so you are in the best place if you are looking for family friendly low carb recipes ! Enjoy the blog and crepes! XOXO Carine.

    • Thanks for this lovely comment! I am so happy you loved the crepes 🙂 Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  10. Hi Carine,
    Major almond flour crepes and I’m wondering or they seem to work out well I’m wondering how do you get past the egg flavor in it there something you can add that will remove the eggy taste to it? Never had a crate before I actually thought they were more close to like a Swedish pancake which is crepe like but maybe the egg is something that it’s supposed to taste like I don’t know I just know that I have to be low carb and low sodium so I was hoping this would taste as good as they sounded but to me it seems like they are like a french toast minus the bread. Thanks in advance, Carrie

    • Hi Carrie! If you are looking for a crepes/pancakes recipes that is low carb and doesn’t taste too eggy try my coconut flour flatbread. Those are 100% egg free, low carb and low sodium. They are soft and delicious with any sweet or savory filling. You can roll them thin or thicker like a pancake if you prefer. Recipe is HERE. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Ravie d’avoir trouver votre ” blog” ! I bought the almond flour some time ago and was wondering what to do with it . Crepes are my ultimate favorite treat ! Will try them today . Merci !

    • C’est vraiment gentil! Contente d’avoir plus de francais qui me lise aussi. Those crepes a re slightly different to the original French crepe recipes – more ‘eggy’ texture as it is a low carb recipe I don’t use flour here. I hope you enjoy this little twist on our original french recipe. A bientot et merci de me lire ! XOXO Carine.

    These were delicious! Thank you for sharing such an easy recipe. I added the tiniest bit of coconut flour, and filled them with coconut cream + fresh fruit + powdered hazelnut spread and I felt like I was indulging in such a decadent breakfast… all while keeping it low carb. Merci beaucoup!

    • Merci pour ce joli commentaire! I am so glad you enjoyed the crepes. Lovely filling too. Enjoy the blog. XOXO Carine.

    • I guess you are asking about carbs amount per crepes. One crepe contains 4.6 g of carbs but only 3.8 g net carbs. Net carbs is what is important on a low cab diet. It is the amount of carbs in a product minus the fibre that are not assimilated by your body – so they don’t count as ‘carbs’. I hope it makes it clearer. Enjoy the almond flour crepes. XOXO Carine.

    I just had these for lunch. I omitted the vanilla as I wanted to fill them with chicken, cheese and roasted red pepper. They were AMAZING!!! Thank you for this delicious recipe. It will be a staple in my diet!

    • Great ! I love the savory filling ideas. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the blog and all the low carb recipes around. XOXO Carine.

  14. 5 stars
    This recipe is delicious. I’ve been put on a tough diet of no dairy, grains or sugar so this recipe is ideal. I did eliminate the vanilla but filling the crepe with banana and a fruit compote. Thank you for this recipe!!

    • My pleasure! It makes me so happy to share recipes that can help anyone on a diet! I know how difficult it could be to find tasty recipes without this or that. My husband is dairy free, egg free and meat free and I don’t eat sugar! So my daily challenge is to create easy tasty recipes that are allergy friendly and share them here. Enjoy the recipes on the blog <3 XOXO Carine.

    • Hello! It is a low car recipe mainly made of eggs so yes the egg texture is there for sure! If you prefer a different low carb crepe recipe try my coconut flour crepes recipe. It is delicious too and you would probably prefer the texture if you are not very much into egg crepes. Enjoy the blog recipes my friend. XOXO Carine.

    Thank you for this recipe. I am looking forward to trying it. Is it possible to freeze them? I like making things that can be frozen and reheated later.

    • I won’t freeze any sort of crepes. I tried before and I don’t really like the result. However this is a quick recipe that keep well in the fridge for 3-4 days ! Enjoy the crepes! Carine.

    I just made these. They are perfection. I made them 1/2 size and filled my first 2 with almond butter and cherry almond butter. So so so good. And the recipe could not be easier. I already have it memorized. This is a new staple in my meal/snack plan!

    • Thanks for this lovely comment ! I am so happy you enjoy the almond crepes. Enjoy them and the other low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.
